Detailed Answer:
Hello Mr XXXXXXX

Welcome to Ask a Doctor Service.

From your description it looks like your son has issue with eye sight, it is quite common.

You have to take him to an eye doctor and get his eye sight tested and if needed spectacles can be prescribed based on the test.

Please go ahead and consult an eye doctor in person.

Hope that helps.
